Abstract: The development of a management tool for the control of structural safety is described. Artificial intelligence techniques of 'machine learning' are employed to facilitate a method of learning from past experience. The serial and parallel approaches of discrimination and connectivity analysis are employed. A technique for building a hierarchically structured knowledge base made up from the study of individual case histories is outlined. Support logic is used to permit an 'open world' representation of uncertainty.
